China flights

Business Spectator has a post today on discussions for direct flights from China: China Eastern mulling flights to Cairns.
Chinese carrier China Eastern is in talks with Cairns airport over potential plans to enter the Queensland market, including offering at least twice weekly services to Cairns, according to The Australian.
The newspaper reports that China Eastern, which already runs services in Shanghai to Sydney and Melbourne, is in advanced negotiations with Tourism Australia on the deal.
China Eastern chairman Liu Shaoyang, Tourism Australia chairman Geoff Dixon and chief executive Andrew McEvoy met earlier this month in China.

Talks centred on the service being operated seasonally, from November to March, according to The Australian.
A seasonal service between November and March is interesting if correct as it would be counter-seasonal, so to speak, although does include the Chinese New Year period.
